Accessing Solaris 11 contract support repositories

Solaris 11 now uses repositories instead of the old recommended patch bundles.

With Oracle locking down access, here is how to configure access, if you have a current Support contract.

  1. 1. Go to https://pkg-register.oracle.com/ and login with your Oracle Support ID.
  2. 2. Generate your support key and certificate and save/transfer them to your Solaris 11 server.
  3. 3. On the server do the following:

sudo mkdir -m 0755 -p /var/pkg/ssl
sudo cp -i /var/tmp/Oracle_Solaris_11_Express_Support.key.pem /var/pkg/ssl
sudo cp -i /var/tmpOracle_Solaris_11_Express_Support.certificate.pem /var/pkg/ssl

sudo pkg set-publisher \
         -k /var/pkg/ssl/Oracle_Solaris_11_Express_Support.key.pem \
         -c /var/pkg/ssl/Oracle_Solaris_11_Express_Support.certificate.pem \
         -O https://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/support/ solaris
pkg list -a ‘pkg://solaris/*’
